House Week 

May 5th-11th  

It’s Neighbourhood House Week (May 5-11) and the 125th anniversary of the ANHBC! 

To celebrate, ANHBC created a series of short videos promoting the amazing work being done at the 8 Neighbourhood Houses around Metro Vancouver.  

Here are links to the videos: 

Urban Farming

Summer's just around the corner, which means we are fully immersed in the growing season!  

Our Farmer Joey and her garden volunteers have been busy planting at our 3 urban farm sites and 10 public herb boxes. Last week we brought back 30 lbs of daikon and beets that stayed in the ground during winter, and used it to make veggie soup for 300 of our Food Bank members! 

You can read more about our gardening programs here:

It’s time for the annual West End community clean up! In partnership with WEBIA, we will be hosting this event at Gordon House on May 11th from 10am-12pm. 

Everyone who attends will be assigned a block to tidy and there will be a BBQ afterwards to celebrate a job well done.
